At least 25 suspected Taliban members were killed and several injured in Pakistan army air strikes on Wednesday.

A senior military official said, on condition of anonymity, that the strikes targeted hideouts belonging to the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan members network and the allied Lashkar group in the northwestern Khyber Agency.

The official said six hideouts and a cache of weapons and ammunition were destroyed.

The Pakistan army began its operations in the Khyber Agency in October 2014, following a June operation to push militants from the adjoining North Waziristan tribal area.
